Can You Guess the Best LGBT City in the World?

Plus, which two U.S. cities barely cracked the top 10?

As pride month wraps up across America — and to commemorate the 48th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York this week — rental apartment site Nestpick crunched some numbers to come up with a list of the top 100 cities around the globe for LGBT communities.

The site made the selection based on quality-of-life factors such as a vibrant gay dating scene, a lively alternative nightlife, open-minded citizens, and low levels of hate crime.

As well, the rankings took into account national laws affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender folks, such as those pertaining to marriage and adoption. Nestpick used all those factors to spit out numbers that ranked the cities in order.

So which one made the top of the list? Well, that would be Spain's Madrid, coming in at 23.56 out of a possible 25.

Next in order were Amsterdam, Toronto, Tel Aviv, London, Berlin, Brighton in the U.K., and Barcelona. So to recap, nearly all of the top eight LGBT cities are in Europe.

But rounding out the top 10 list were two American cities: New York City came in at No. 9, and San Francisco at No. 10.
